Born Emmanuel John Dankwa popularly known as Sony Achiba was one of the artists who ruled the music scene in the early 2000s with his ‘Hip Dia’ (a fusion of Hiplife and Indian music rhythms). Unfortunately, his fame lasted for three(3) years in Ghana music industry and he’s blaming Ghanaian DJs for aborting his career.
In an interview with Showbiz, Sony Achiba said he had no wish to die out after enjoying only three years of fame but he was pushed out by the DJs.
“Ghanaian DJs kill talents. That is what most of them do. They don’t appreciate the efforts of artists. They will even retire you before your time because they don’t know what we go through to get our music out there,” he said.
“Every mainstream artiste can appreciate the energy we put in to make our songs successful. Unfortunately, our DJs, who are supposed to help the growth of the industry would rather charge high ‘unofficial’ fees to play the song.
“As if that isn’t enough, they will be quick to retire you early from active music because they determine who should reign or not. As soon as a new artiste pops up, the older ones are left out of the competition because they think your time has passed,” he lamented.
I nearly aborted DJ Switch when I conceived her – Mother
Mother of Ghana’s youngest DJ, DJ Switch has disclosed that she considered having an abortion while she was pregnant with her daughter.
She remorsefully said on Zylofon 102.1 FM’s Showbiz Agenda that had she known her daughter would have turned out successful, the thought will not have crossed her mind.
“I almost aborted her. I actually went ahead to purchase the drug to terminate the pregnancy but I changed my mind later on”, she said.
According to her, she realized she was with another child six months after having her first child and could not bear the stigma.
“I was the talk of town. Everybody was pointing fingers at me because I had just graduated and in less than two years, was going to be a mother of two”, she added.
However, she expressed her joy in the fact that she restrained from the act and, now her daughter is the most popular young DJ in the country.
